Media: Americans will not be able to oust Russia from the Indian arms market

35
The Russian-Indian agreement on the supply and co-production of weapons reached by 24 December shows that Moscow remains one of the main partners of India, according to an article published in the Washington Post.




The leaders of both countries said that they would “simplify the visa regime, start cooperation within the framework of a joint venture for the production of military helicopters in India, and also continue to build nuclear reactors in the country,” the newspaper said.

The author points out that the Indian arms market is "becoming increasingly attractive for other major players."

"In recent years, the United States has entered into competition with Russia, which is striving to become the main supplier weapons to India. They mainly supply military planes and helicopters there, "- quotes the publication RIA News.

According to the newspaper, “Moscow understands Delhi’s desire to diversify arms supplies, but at the same time does not lose its share of the arms market of this Asian country.”

And although the parties have not yet confirmed the information about Delhi’s intention to buy Russian C-400 air defense systems, this deal, according to the author, is the most anticipated one. At least, "this is not removed from the agenda," he writes.

“The Indian weapons company Reliance Defense announced on Thursday that it has signed an agreement with the Russian corporation Almaz-Antey, worth $ 6 billion on production and repair. It is known that Almaz-Antey is engaged in the manufacture of C-400 air defense systems, ”the newspaper notes.

WP, points to the fact that “the export of Russian weapons in the world only grows every year,” and India has always been one of Russia's main partners.

        Also, the Indian side flew to Pakistan for the first time in ten years.
        And yet, the Russian Federation and India expressed support for the sovereignty and integrity of Syria.

      Такая информация разве была? Что бы кинуть трубу из Ирана в Индию надо договариваться с Пакистаном. Раньше информация про "Силу Сибири" проходила, что ее могут тянуть в Индию.

    Moscow remains one of India’s main partners

    There is no way for Americans to squeeze Russia out of the arms market of India, too many ties between our countries, and it’s more profitable to deal with such a reliable partner as our country.

      Optimistic. Only here India can not be called a reliable partner, especially with its current orientation towards the West. At least they are quite heavy negotiators. A lot of examples can be given - with the same joint project of a promising fighter.

    Will we be the main suppliers of weapons - India will decide. They enforce the principle of diversification. Therefore, the main task of ours is to keep a certain segment of the Indian market. If there is an opportunity, then expand it. But to think that Indians will buy exclusively from us is stupid. And the United States will certainly try to squeeze a competitor out of the market. As indeed we

      Volodya! Hello. The whole point of the Indian market is how we will provide warranty service and whether there will be service centers in India? As well as the stability of our economic policy. We must remember the history of T-90 tanks of the Indian order. So far, Putin has not personally confirmed that Uralvagonzavod will continue will work, until then the Indians pulled with this order, which cost the life of V.I. Potkin, the chief designer of the Ural car factory.

      Unfortunately, Russia is second only to the sale of weapons after the United States ... mattresses are trying to develop markets that have always been the site of the USSR, and after the Russian Federation. A much more remarkable fact is that some weapons buyers in the Middle East who bought American weapons, now thinking about buying ours, in the light of such convincing advertising of it in Syria.

    If it weren’t for massive corruption in the countries where we offer our weapons, then there would be nothing for the Americans and others like them to catch. The cost-effectiveness criterion most often requires the choice of our weapons.

      All this is correct, with one small exception. Since the times of the Soviet Union, there has always been a practice of forgetting about service. And spare parts for our machines were made by the whole world except the manufacturer. I remember that after school I went to work at the factory, and this is the heaviest burden for workers and for the plant was the release of spare parts.

      And secondly, we have only two friends, the army and the navy. This is a hackneyed quote, but it is. And under capitalism, which is wild like dogs, you cannot be sure of anyone.

    Not burdened with political conditions of supply, of course, more profitable. Especially if the weapon is the most advanced and relatively cheap.

    India is an unpredictable country, and only after the fulfillment of the contract it will be possible to say that everything is fine. Otherwise they will conclude a contract, and tomorrow they will annul and curse the Indians as easily as now.

    Even if we make every effort, this will not succeed. For many reasons, and most importantly, at the economic level. In addition, we ourselves are sometimes to blame for the fact that the Indians introduced diversification in the purchase of weapons. We ourselves are sometimes to blame, resting on the laurels of the past and continuing to hope, then we will always and everyone will buy everything that we did not offer. But the market has changed. Like the appetites of buyers. And as a result, we began to lose tenders, which earlier (40 years ago) won at a time.

    Было, но сейчас стараются унифицировать. Бронетехника у них в основном наша, но их "Арджун" уже имеет НАТОвский калибр и нарезное орудие. Артиллерию они тоже сейчас начинают унифицировать, узодя от 122-мм и 130-мм калибра и старых систем. А в этом сегменте мы подчистую проигрываем. Наша легкая 155-мм гаубица М-346 (ЕМНИП) вряд ли даже участвовала в тендере, а то, что могло участвовать - 2А61 - имеет калибр 152-мм. А нафига это Индии, когда она переходит на 155-мм. А М-346 хотя и была создана на экспорт, но не слышал, чтобы ее кто-то покупал. А кто будет брать то, чего ни кого нет на вооружении.
    So we articulated the artillery segment
